Brad Evan Taylor is an Associate professor in Ceramics at the University of Hawai’i, Manoa. In speaking to his work Brad says, “ I challenge my strength with the resistance of my materials – pushing us both to our physical limits. I explore the potentials of clay; and I choreograph the movement of mass – fire collaborates; but I control and limit its input. These works speak to phenomenology, experience, and context”. Brad’s work has been exhibited in many exhibitions around the world such as: Taipei, Taiwan, Cluj-Napoca, Romania, Ankara, Turkey, Dublin, Ireland, Ljubljana, Slovenia, Icheon, Korea, Jingdezhen, as well as numerous exhibition across the United States. Brad has also received many prestigious awards including the 2020 Taiwan Ceramics Biennale, Silver Award, and the World Ceramic Biennale International Competition, Silver Award. He received his MFA from Alfred University, New York and his BFA from the University of Utah. He was a tenured Professor at Konkuk University, Korea, and taught at the University of Utah. His work is currently on exhibit at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art.
